This is an exciting, mind-expanding and accessible guide to some of the big questions in science.
After a brief introduction three experienced science writers discuss 20 questions such as 'How Did Life Begin?', 'Are There Other Universes?', 'How Wil We Beat Bacteris?' & 'Is Time Travel Possible?'
Well designed and clearly written 'The Big Questions In Science' is an engrossing and stimulating book suitable for anyone wishing to understand some of the latest scientific ideas.

A quirky reference book. Bought for my son, hope he will find it useful for random answers (he has lots of questions!)

Not really an in depth science reference book. But more specifically answers a range of unconventional questions like why do we dream?, can computers keep getting faster?, and can we live forever? (to name a few).

The book is hard bound and of good quality overall.
